The Need To Enslave

The Need To Enslave

Last weekend, I had the time and opportunity to watch two films in two days. Both are based on true life stories, and also based in large part on the personal accounts of the protagonists. Both have been hailed as wonderful films with performances which are Oscar worthy. On the face of it, they did not have […]






Junk Alert

Junk Alert

In the sixties and seventies, alcohol and tobacco were wrecking havoc on the health of the people, and doctors and policy makers alike were just waking up to the fact  that serious health repercussions could result due to these habits/ addictions. It took a long and hard fought battle with the powerful opposing lobby to implement  restrictions […]






The Cost Of Living

The Cost Of Living

The great columnist of The Washington Post, Art Buchwald was perhaps, also a clairvoyant man. A tongue-in-cheek piece by him written nearly 30 years ago, in the wake of rising prices in the U.S.A, describes his own foray into grocery shopping with his wife. He has to pass an armed guard, show his I.D. and […]






A Vegetarian In Turkey

A Vegetarian In Turkey

“Vegetarian!!!” intoned our cousin D, succinctly. “No fish, no chicken, no egg, no meat.” The waiter in the restaurant in Avanos, Turkey, nodded enthusiastically and then…looked blankly at us. Of the three of us, only D was vegetarian, rigidly so in fact and we needed to be sure of what would be served. By now, […]






Starbucks Vs Sattar Buksh!

Starbucks Vs Sattar Buksh!

In the 1998 Hollywood romantic film, You’ve Got Mail, starring Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan, a classic face-off between the neighbourhood ‘mom-and-pop’ book- store versus a national chain is the back-drop to the story. The struggle of the little shop to stay afloat in trying times and its subsequent failure is probably played out in […]






A Wee Village By The Loch

A Wee Village By The Loch

                        We turned off the A-82; the first sight of the main village square of Scottish village of Drumnadrochit with a pub, restaurant, grocery shop and newsagent, straight out of an Enid Blyton story. Flowers bloomed everywhere; colorful petunias peered out of hanging baskets on […]






Full Bloom!

Full Bloom!

              One of the perks of aging was that I could give up my looks as a lost cause and save a lot of time and money that would be spent primping in front of the mirror. The hair-style, style of clothes and so forth, that suit me are now practically set in stone and […]






Home By Seven

Home By Seven

            I always wondered what would be like to be a boy and to be in a world, where the freedom and choices seemed to be limitless. Where the deadline-free timings left one free to do whatever one wished at all kinds of crazy hours. Where the clothes one wore or […]






Indian Shame In Turkey

Indian Shame In Turkey

                      Fireworks were exploding over Sultanahmet square in Istanbul, as we strolled back after dinner. It was our last night in Turkey, a country that had thrown quite a few surprises our way, all of them pleasant. The term Turkish delight could be applied to more […]






The Yummy Mummy Myth

The Yummy Mummy Myth

       Standing in the checkout-line at a supermarket, I saw an ad for a weight-loss clinic go up on screen. It started with ”Ladies, do you HATE looking at yourself in the mirror? Do you want to be a page three yummy-mummy?” in bold letters with a blaring commentary to match. This was […]






A Splash Of Joy

A Splash Of Joy

It was a hectic morning as always. Driving for a full 10  minutes in rush hour Mumbai traffic and successfully crossing the grid-locked Khodadad circle, I was ascending the Tilak bridge at a crawl. Looking out of my window, I saw this beautiful and tall bougainvillea vine that had crawled on the top of a […]

Mission Statement

Who are we? We are writers. And here, in this space, we put pride and passion back into writing. We give ourselves and each other creative freedom and respect.

* We create an environment where content generation does not entail degeneration of inspiration and spirit.
* We create content that we believe in and identify with.
* We recognise that to create is always of more value than to berate.
*We critique without malice and arrogance.

This site is about us writers, what we stand for but more importantly, about creating something valuable, inclusive, thought-provoking. In this space, we do not just stand for ourselves but for all those who listen to a compelling inner voice that tells them, "Create!"
